SERENA JOST at PANGEA
Serena Jost writes and performs songs that are at turns seductive, edgy, affecting, and otherworldly. A dynamic singer and cellist with a hauntingly beautiful voice, she is a unique performer whose music evokes vivid emotional landscapes. Tonight she performs from her recent solo album Up To The Sky, introduces new songs and plays fan favorites. She will be joined by her stellar band, Julian Maile (Loser's Lounge), Rob Jost (Dear Evan Hansen) and Robert DiPietro (Norah Jones). Critically acclaimed Up To The Sky was recorded at the historic St. Peter's Church, in Chelsea NYC following A Bird Will Sing, produced by the legendary Anton Fier. This is her debut performance at Pangea.
Growing up between The Midwest and Switzerland, Serena walked along the Great Lakes (she found her cello wrapped in a brown blanket in a basement in northern Michigan) and over mountain passes (she comes from a long line of gown-wearing, horse-riding yodelers). Serena has performed at seminal NYC venues such as Joes Pub, Saint Peters Church, Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room, Barbès, Tonic, and The Kitchen. Serena is currently touring in support of her latest album, Up To The Sky and was an original member of Rasputina, the well-corseted cello group.
"the Elizabeth Barrett Browning of avant-classical folk" Stereo Ember Magazine
"Serena Jost writes gently eccentric songs and sings them in an elegant alto, often accompanying herself on cello, but it isnt quite right to call her a singer-songwriter. The term art songnormally tied to 19th-century concert musicusefully characterizes Josts carefully arranged pieces and succinct lyrics, neither quite rock nor folk" Time Out NY
"a collection of composed and improvised pieces that marry her distinctive playing style with her otherworldly voice." KMUW, Jedd Beaudoin (Wichita's NPR Station)

Downtowns intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Maxs Kansas City from days gone by."
